Dr. Hannaman and Dr. Hebert offer amalgam (silver) restorations as well as white, tooth-colored fillings. Today, tooth-colored dental fillings are more common than their amalgam counterparts. Our Lake Charles dentists still offer both types of fillings for several reasons. We always want to provide you with the very best dental restoration for your smile. The location of your filling and the structure of your tooth will determine which type of material we should use.
Patients sometimes ask us if one dental filling is better than the other. Both dental filling materials have advantages and disadvantages depending on where we place them and the amount of tooth structure involved. No filling option is better than the other 100 percent of the time, which is why we always use our best judgment when deciding which material to use.
We will also take into account your personal preferences and the goals for your smile. You are the one in charge of your dental treatment—so please let us know the type of dental filling you prefer.
